Sadly, after being identified as a repro right here, this is being re-advertised on eBan as:

"an original and very rare land customs dagger. The dagger is made by Alcoso and has the trademark scales with ACS.

How unfortunate that bidder ID`s are now secret. Nobody can be warned about this POS.
For anyone who did not see this i believe it was advertised in the for sale forum & subsequently removed by one of the moderators.

What a credit to the forum this "premium" member is. unfortunately I can`t remember it`s name & the removal post has now been deleted.


War is when your government tells you who the enemy is.
Revolution is when you figure it out for yourself.

Seller's name was "Lokityr", same as the Eban handle. Landser is right on the money when he says POS, what a tool.

Here's the thread on the seller's item removal from GD:

I have asked him to explain a little more in the thread linked just above. I can see that he is watching the Forum but not posting.

Every now and then someone signs up to try to sell questionable stuff. Our members here are a lot more aware of bad items than most people so we usually spot them. If anyone sees a fake or what looks like a scam, please let the mods or myself/Vern know.

Lokityr, now would be a good time to speak up and tell us what is going on

There was a similiar issue recently on WAF. Seller caught selling something on the flea after it was identified in the forums as problematic. Owner/seller didn't seem to care.

The silence is deafening.
However...The item is no longer available

" The seller ended this listing early because of an error in the listing."

When I started out collecting my 3rd piece was bought off ebay & it was a reproduction. It had been sold by a member of this forum on another auction as an original & the scum bag that bought it stiffed me with it a couple of months later. I was a newbie on the forum then & I remember how several people came out to defend the member who had put this dog back out as an original.

I really HATE to see anything like this because I remeber how bitterly disappointed I was.
I also find it surprising that some people will sell their self respect for a paltry couple of hundred bucks and it is an abject lesson in human nature. Unfortunately something that anyone entering this hobby needs to be fully aware of.
